Norwich School Features in "Top 100 Schools by A Level Results"

08 February 2019

Norwich School is delighted to feature in the ‘top 100 schools by A level results’ list published by the Department of Education for the 2017/18 academic year. It is the only school in Norfolk/Suffolk to appear in the top 100 list and one of the few co-educational day schools, particularly of those outside London and the South East.

This annual results table, which lists results from thousands of schools across the UK, is based on the average points per academic entry and the percentage of pupils achieving AAB or better with two facilitating subjects (those subjects commonly needed for entry to leading universities). Norwich School has an average point per A level entry score of 45.5 per A level entry and 42.7 % achieving AAB with two facilitating subjects.

Steffan Griffiths, Head Master, comments “Academic results are a clumsy measure of a school’s overall performance. However, when taken with the weight of co-curricular activities and the practical experience of leadership and service undertaken by last year’s U6, these strong academic results help to demonstrate the rounded education we seek to provide to enable our young people to pursue their chosen next steps”.

The school is pleased that pupils from other schools have also benefitted in their onward journeys by attending Norwich School’s Norfolk Universities Summer School. Those attending the course have secured 7 Oxbridge offers and a host of other exciting and varied courses at leading universities across the country.
